For the month of April I have taken up Frédérique's Quilting Patchwork and Applique challenge to blog daily (except Sundays) on a quilt topic related to a letter of the alphabet.

Oh, how we quilters love our Fat Quarters!
Neutrals purchased at Pineapple Fabrics in North Carolina in December.
While the charm square is the original pre-cut and Moda's "Jelly Rolls" and "Layer Cakes" have taken the spotlight in recent years, the Fat Quarter still holds its own in the pre-cut pantheon.
|Free patterns using pre-cuts can be found at the MODA Bake Shop.|
After all there is nothing like a fat quarter bundle purchased or -- in the case of these two -- won!
|There were more in that "Boro" bundle but I've already used many of them!|
Ever since I started quilting, I've stored my fat quarter stash in one of those generic white shoe cubbies.
|My "Studio" at our previous apartment.|
When we moved in 2011 and my "quilt studio" had to be housed in the dining room, I always planned to mount it on the wall. I was excited to see a blog post that talked about decorating a dresser with selvedges for a sewing room. Well, if you can do it for a dresser, why not a shoe cubby? So I did this:
....and the Fat Quarters are secure! However, even when it's open, I made sure to position a few reassurances for my day to day quilting life:
Do you like to buy Fat Quarters or prefer other pre-cuts? Have you used them for sewing room displays in addition to putting them in projects?
Linking up with Frédérique and the other Challengers at Quilting Patchwork and Applique. Bonne journée!
